‘Bridging the Gap between Social Enterprise and Buyer Demand’
The Social Enterprise Conference is the only national social enterprise conference bringing together business and government buyers with ST certified social enterprises to provide a networking, knowledge sharing and community building opportunity.
This year the conference will run over two days. Day 2 is available to the public.
- High profile business, government and social enterprise speakers sharing key insights in the challenges and best practice
- Unique networking opportunities between government, business and social enterprise practitioners
- Largest gathering of Australia’s social enterprise sector with 250 delegates from varied industries

Procurement in Australia is estimated to be approximately $600 billion. For every $100,000 spent on social procurement 1.5 jobs are created for disadvantaged Australians. Buying from social enterprise represents the greatest untapped potential in generating positive, sustainable social impact.
